Name the forces acting on a plastic bucket containing water held above ground level in your hand. Discuss why the forces acting on the bucket do not bring a change in its state of motion.
Forces acting on the bucket are
- Muscular force
- Gravitational force
Muscular force is used to hold the bucket containing the water and gravitational force is pulling the water down.
Here, both muscular force and gravitational force are equal.
Therefore, there is no change in state of motion of bucket.
